Wig Size

Average wigs fit heads 21.5" - 22.5".  99% of people fall into this category.  Wigs have adjustable velcro and elastic tabs at the back so you can adjust your wig for a more secure and comfortable fit.

Choosing a Colour

Firstly, you need to be aware of your skin tone, skin tone usually falls into 3 categories - Cool, Warm or Neutral.  A good guide to ascertain your skin tone is to look at the veins on the inside of your arm just above your wrist.  If the veins are blue in colour this suggests you have cool toned skin, if the veins are green this suggests you have warm toned skin and if you do not fall into either category this suggests you have neutral skin tone.  Hair colour should make your complexion and eyes look bright and glowing and not drain the complexion.  An example, if you are choosing a blonde coloured wig - warm/gold/orange base wigs complement warm skin tones.  Cool toned skin works better with ashy/whiter base blonde wigs.  Once you know your skin tone, why stick with one colour?  You can explore other colours. Just think of Beyonce and Rihanna who wear many different colours & hairstyles, they have neutral skin tone, in terms of blonde they look better in warm/gold/orange base blonde wigs. Experiment with different colours to see which enhance your complexion and eyes by placing various colours next to your face to ascertain which works best for you.  Also, be aware of your makeup and the amount of bronzer you use this can dramatically alter your skin tone.

If you don't know your colour/colour code or simply wish to explore other colours, Colour Rings are the best option for choosing your wig colour ie a synthetic colour ring for synthetic wigs and/or human colour ring for human wigs.  Please email us if you wish to purchase a colour ring.

Synthetic -v- Human Hair Wig?

Todays quality synthetic wigs are visually indisguishable from human hair and synthetic is cheaper and easier to care for.

What wig will suit my shape face?

Most face shapes are usually one of five basic shapes - Oval, Round, Square, Oblong, Heart/Diamond.

The easiest way to determine face shape it to stand in front of the mirror, pull your hair back away from your face and ask yourself what is the widest part of your face - your forehead or your jaw, maybe is neither and your cheekbones are the widest.  Look at your chin is it pointy, round or square?  Picture an imaginary line going around your face - what shape is it?

Choosing the best hairstyle for your face shape depends on which styles you like, which suit your lifestyle but above all which hairstyle will look the most flattering on you!!

Heart Shaped faces - ideally hairstyles should draw focus to the eyes and cheekbones.  a side swept fringe, keep layers long and avoid short, blunt cut bangs at all costs.

Oval Shaped faces - lucky you, you can pull off nearly any hairstyle or hair shape.  There are no limits to hairstyles for your face shape.

Square Shaped faces - usually this means you have a strong angular jaw which is a great asset, best hairstyle is something with a lot of texture, curls, choppy ends or even short spikey cuts are ideal for you.

Round shaped faces - sometimes can be challenging, you need to make the face appear longer and leaner.  Hairstyles with less volume around the face, shoulder length hair with soft layers is the ideal style.

Oblong Shaped faces - hairstyles that dont appear to drag your face down adding length.  A chin length bob will give the illusion of width so anything along these lines is good.  Avoid pixie cuts as they will make you look like a little girl.

 Caring for your Wig(s)

When you are not wearing your wig, store on a mannequin or wig stand to keep its shape.  Depending on your environment and how much you perspire from the head we recommend washing hair every 7-14 days of wear.

Washing your Wig

Ensure the wig is tangle free either using a wide tooth comb or finger combing.  Spray with with luke warm water and add some Baby Shampoo and smooth it down the hair, rinse and repeat as necessary. Gently fingercomb the wig while wet and hang to dry.  The wig depending on environment will be dry within an hour.

Common Wig Terms

1:Capless wigs are the most common and affordable design. Wefts of hair are sewn onto the cap, which has a closed lace layer at the crown. The hair is cut and styled into a specific style and the crown is often teased or crimped so you cannot see down through to the cap. This type of cap often gives the hair volume at the crown.


2:Lace Front wigs create the illusion of natural hair growth along the hairline. This adds to the natural appearance of a wig and allows for styling away from the face. Some come pre-trimmed and are ready to wear while others will require some personalization


3:Full Lace caps allow each hair to move freely for the most natural look. The whole cap is hand tied and it is very comfortable to have a full lace wig,so the full lace cap is more expensive.


4: Monofilament caps offer a very natural look with parting versatility. The mesh material gives the illusion of hair growth from the scalp and allows for individual, hand-tied hair. As a result, hair can be parted and combed in different directions. Monofilament wigs can be monofilament at the part, crown or entire top of wig.
